I had fun with this kit! Super versatile! I did get a little obsessed with pinwheels this month, though.  Click on image above to purchase.

Loved playing with Echo Park Summer papers here!

Monochromatic cream layout with vintage doily.

My current planner, made with my bind-it-all!

Oct Afternoon thrift shop papers and more pinwheels!

And this one is various paper scraps from my desk. 🙂

Okay – so this month, Ann showed you the Direct To Paper technique. I think I probably use this technique more than any other – I just find it the easiest! 🙂

In my first picture – I used this method to color the watering can. I used the Warm Greys – W5, W3, W1. You can see how I used my darkest shade towards the spout and lightened it up as I went across.

In my second image, I used the Direct to Paper technique when coloring Tilda’s hair and skin. I used E35,E37 and E39 for her hair and E000,E00 and E11 for the skin.

For my third image, I use the direct to paper method and the Tip to Tip method on my little boy image! This is a crimped envelope card I made for my Dad for Father’s day – it will hold a gift card inside. If you’re interested, you can find the tutorial here: Crimped Envelope Card

I have posted the copic colors I used in the gallery at SNS, so you can check there if you are interested.  Also, just a note….all the ribbons used in these cards are from Savvy N Sassy of course!! 🙂 You and find those in the store! 🙂

Direct to paper blending.

You will need 3 colors in the same family (same gray scale and about a number apart) to try this out. I used B00, B02, B04

1. Color you image with your lightest color. Make sure to color in circles to avoid streaks. I leave some areas uncolored in my first coat so that when I go over it it will be a lighter area.

2. While it’s still wet, add your darkest color to your “shadow side”. Do this by doing strokes and lifting up your marker at the end of your stroke so the edge has more color than the end of your stroke.

3. Use your lightest color again and go over the image to blend you lines. Thicker papers will take more blending. If it’s not working try using colors that are closer in numbers

4. Keep doing steps 2 and 3 until you get the effect you want

5. You can add your middle color now where you want it. Then use your lightest color to blend it all together.

This takes practice. And I found to start that blues, greens and light browns were the easiest. Reds were the hardest to blend but I got it after lots of practice. That’s the key with Copics, practice.
